  1. The key to good short times are

    Traction
    Proper suspension setup

    But MOST important................

    Drive it like you stole it

  2. Yup , have decent suspension as far as arms but the rest is lowering **** so no transfer , the traction is non existence cuz of tires leaving but as far as shifting well my TRANS must like me cuz I drive the **** out of it
     
  3. Lol, you haven't ****ed your tranny off yet because you haven't gotten traction yet. T5+traction+powershifting=dead T5. I've done it waaaaaay too many times. :jester:

  7. Nice looking build! :)
     
  8. Thank you !
     
  9. I could use a nice 3 row for this thing ;)
     

  10. Well jeez, I plan on boosting my 88 Vert with a ProCharger I have chilling on my desk and you're making me want to convert mine to auto!
     
  11. I will take anyone for a ride that has a stick..that wants boost ...After you ride in a Worked Auto with boost you will have a nice grin...Just remember there are very few people who can shift as fast a worked Auto..And a turbo loves a load...so with an auto thats what is does it loads it up...just pulls like a freight train...

  17. I want to do a box top car though not a fan of the futura though I do love his project .
     
  18. Is this where I offer a ride in my Ttop car? I'll have all the turbo junkies on the morning train to California, to pick up a new Vortech ;)
     
  19. Supercharger for the win. No turbo headaches and no refilling bottles. :)
